Aloha! You're speaking to Dr. Michael Salkin
I'm sorry that your question wasn't answered in a timely manner. I'm having difficulty understanding your post. I believe that you're concerned about staining that has appeared around Miele's eyes due to the discharge from those eyes. Please correct me if I'm wrong.
Most veterinarians don't recommend using products designed to bleach away the staining; instead, we look for the cause of the discharge and address it. If we can correct why the discharge is appearing and staining Miele's hair, you won't need to use any product at all. Common causes of the discharge include an allergic conjunctivitis, a dacryocystitis (infection of the tear apparatus) and anatomical disorders such as misplaced eyelashes and cilia which mechanically irritate the cornea (distichiasis, trichiasis), and malformed eyelids (entropion, ectropion).
A careful examination of Miele's eyes should find the underlying cause although referral to a specialist veterinary ophthalmologist may be suggested because such a specialist has the equipment to examine the eyes more thoroughly. Please respond with further questions or concerns if you wish.

where can find someone deals with eyes she under RSPCA

Expert:  Dr. Michael Salkin replied 2 years ago.
Your regular vets at the RSPCA can refer you to such a specialist if he/she isn't comfortable examining Miele. There's a good chance that Miele won't need to see a specialist veterinary ophthalmologist.

should i ask if they have vet that deals with eye mainly

Expert:  Dr. Michael Salkin replied 2 years ago.
Certainly. In my experience, however, they refer owners to outside specialists who have agreed to work with the RSPCA. Here's an example: http://optimistworld.com/Blind-dodger-dog-RSPCA-rescue-cataract/
